Three Tall Women

Edward Albee's drama Three Tall Women is that rare beast: a serious play with not one but three strong female leads. "A" is the eldest, and she's nearing death. "B" is her middle-aged caretaker, sitting with A and helping her remember the past. "C" is a too-serious young lawyer, who needs A to sign some official papers. A and B team up against C, chiding her for her earnestness and her discomfort with A's infirmities. B and C sometimes team up on A, questioning her choices and attempting to unravel some of her more gnomic pronouncements. As the play progresses, you begin to see the outline of a single life, complicated by faithless men and a disobedient son, who was himself mistreated by his faithless mother. Stray Dog Theatre presents the fascinating Three Tall Women at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (February 6 to 22) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; Tickets are $25 to $30.
